Servings: Makes 12-14 muffins
- 1 1/2 cups apple, diced (we used 2 fuji apples)
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/3 cup light brown sugar, packed
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
Preheat oven to 400°F. Prepare a muffin pan with baking cups.
Toss apple and granulated sugar in medium bowl. Let stand for 10 minutes.
Whisk together flour, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt in a separate large bowl.
Stir milk, butter, vanilla and eggs into apple mixture. Add to flour mixture and stir until just combined.
Pour batter into prepared baking cups, filling approximately 3/4 full. Bake until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 18-20 minutes. Carefully remove muffins from pan and set aside on a wire rack to cool completely.
